Dr. Chamberlain and his staff were awesome to work with! I was at the end of the year and my deductible was met but wasn't sure I could get my gallbladder removed before the first of the year. Dr. Chamberlain's nurse asked him and the surgery was done on the 30th of December! What an awesome place to work with! I recommend this surgical facility to all of my friends needing help in surgeries need in the future Dr. Chamberlain and staff can assist with! Thank you!

Knowledgeable and Confident enough to put my mind at ease. Performed operation last year, and again for a new issue this year. Both experiences were the same: pleasant, informative and low stress. Even post-follow up he and his office would call to check how I was doing every couple weeks! Will always prefer Dr. Chamberlain for this type of surgery.

The operation when by very quickly. My incision healed without any discomfort. Dr. Chamberlain checked me 2 weeks later, and answered all questions that I had. I really appreciate the professionalism that Dr. Chamberlain, and his staff have shown me...

Dr Chamberlain removed my wife's gallbladder. It was a sensitive operation because of my wife's conditions - severe Alzheimer's, MS and reduced immune system and totally disabled and unable to manage on her own. The doctor treated her respectively and he and the hospital staff provided extra care so that it was not an intimidating experience for her.

Dr. Chamberlain was very kind and professional. After being diagnosed with cancer, he was patient in answering my questions and helping me feel more at ease and confident with my future. He was quick to schedule surgery and did it in a way that left minimal scarring. I've had several professionals comment on the surgery he performed and how well he did. I've talked with several friends who have had surgery from other surgeons and the scars were very different than what I have. I highly recommend Dr. Chamberlain and if I need further surgery, I would not hesitate to call him again.

I was referred to Dr. C for a Lumpectomy. I want to be balanced, but the whole place rubbed me the wrong way. 1st, I was asked for my 35$ co-pay 3x's. Twice before even completing the paperwork. The office is clean but stark. No mirror in the bathroom, no traditional photos or even anatomy drawings. The Dr. entered the room w/o knocking and didn't introduce himself. He is up beat, but also gives off the impression that your diagnosis is not a big deal, and maybe to him it isn't, but to me it is. My consultation felt like I was on some kind of an assembly line, just another body. He lacks connection and warmth. For some people that may not matter, but when someone is going to cut your breast off, it matters quite a bit. I think the kicker was when I tried to explain how emotional I am and I needed some help calming down, his response was, "You need to see a psychiatrist, I don't do that". Seriously, wouldn't most people feel scared? How about some compassion? I will go else where.

I was treated with complete respect and Dr. Chamberlain was not only very professional, but made me feel comfortable at all times. I told him I will refer him to anyone I know needing his type of services. I was happy that my family doctor referred him to me.
